Cox Internet is unreliable. I use a dial up for Back up. Your new player requires more bandwidth. Stay with the older player for dial up users.

since maybe a year ago, our new .mp4 derivative video files are indeed slightly bigger
(went up from 512kb/sec to 700kb/sec for the video track, plus another ~128kb/sec for the audio).

but the new vs. old player will have no bearing on .mp4 filesize and bandwidth as they both use "progressive download" of our .mp4 / .ogv files

however, if you ended up in a scenario where the new player was preferring the .mp4 and the older one was preferring the .ogv, then you *would* see some increased bandwidth. but i think that shouldn't really ever happen...
